I'm a bit surprised about the volume of patent discussion I generated
but in 20/20 hindsight I should have seen it coming.
Please, let's move legalese discussions over to another thread/topic:
[topic-shift] copyrighting/copylefting/patenting hardware and software
Anyway, since I'm not an software developer or much of an active
participant on the mailinglist I just want to make an simple an clear
I came up with my idea on my own. But I'm not surprised if
shoogle/Rene Mayrhofer/ Hans Gellersen/ or someone else have come up
with something that's equal or similar long before I did. But more
importantly, _I have no interest in patenting._
Frankly because I think the patent system is badly broken as it's now.
( "If it's broken, Don't use it! Fix it!" ^_^ )
But, if *sic* "mobile handshaking" it's such a bloody god idea, give me
credit _if_ credit is warranted. ;) (PS. I'm not capable of developing
PS2. I'd be happy to discuss or converse by email, so don't be shy
about hitting the send button if anyone got anything to say. :)
Sincerly signing off this thread, Heikki Soerum.
